At another event, in a grade palace, we are poured the producer's Soave. In another room they pour their barrel aged Chardonnay. At the table they serve us a Merlot, the grapes dried Amarone style. We ask for so more Soave. It took quite the arm twisting to get them to pour us the simple little Soave. The other wines were designed for whom?

The next morning I made my way to Tuscany, and Badia a Coltibuono. Upon entering a fresco covered room, I sensed a familiar place. …

…was the next big thing in Italian white wine. While I mentioned it could possibly be the comeback of Soave, I suggested what might be more logical would be for the Dry Moscato wines to surge.Following on the heels of the sweeter Moscato from Piedmont, the Sicilians love the gloppy, raisiny passitos from Pantelleria to accompany their Baroque desserts. But when it's August and hotter than hell, a crisp dry Zibbibo is hard to beat. Donnafugata's 2012 Lighea is a perfect …

Cantina di Soave ...

Visit number two today is at Cantina di Soave, established in 1898 by 30 producers ... today they boast 2200 growers/members, have 6000 hectares and produce some 30 million bottles.

We are at the smallest of their facilities, "dedicated to high quality brands":

Rocca Sveva, where they make 400,000 from only 100 member vineyards. Usually I don't take a lot of cellar pictures, but it's interesting

to note that their cellar is 300 meters under …

I've been writing about a couple wines from Soave lately and here's another one that pretty good.

Like most Soave, this one is made from 100% garganega. It's one of the brands from Cantina Di Soave .

The thing that really makes this wine stand out is how aromatic it is. There's a floral quality on the nose that is just delightful. It's one of those wines that I spend more time sniffing than tasting, although it tastes pretty darn good too.

Peach, …

Here is another Soave that's worth checking out. This one comes from Cantina Di Soave under their ReMidas brand.

It's made from 100% garganega grapes and is, of course, from the Veneto region in Italy — where the Soave DOC is located.

I know this is a scent description that annoys some people, but I have to say this wine is "round" on the nose. What I mean by that is the sensation generated by the aromas in this wine is one that …
